What’s cuter than Eskimo kisses? An intimate close up with your ring in view as you lay your hand on your beau’s shoulder is a subtle way to say, “I’m engaged,” while showing off that bling.

On the other hand, why be subtle when your ring is as dazzling as this!? Put that sparkler in the limelight.

One of our favorite engagement announcement ideas! Grab Starbucks for a cozy fall photo and a creative way to announce your new relationship status. Have the barista write “fiancé,” “mr.” and “mrs.,” or “I asked” and “he/she said yes,” on each cup, respectively.

There’s just something so adorable about holding hands (especially in a sweet field of lavender). It says, “we’re in this together,” and gives an excuse to display that ring.

How adorbs is this sign? A bold “yes” says everything. We love how the watercolor flowers match the bride - and groom-to-be’s hair vines and bow tie in the background.

Why beat around the bush? Hold your ring, box and all, to state the obvious. We especially love this idea if the proposal used a creative ring box or holder — baseball-themed engagement announcement ideas are always a hit (see what we did there?)!
